Heat Sign Guard Briante Weber

AUGUST 21: The signing is official, according to a team press release.

AUGUST 13: The Heat have agreed to a partially-guaranteed contract with guard Briante Weber, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports tweets.

Weber played for the Grizzlies last season on a 10-day contract after he was released in mid-January by the Rockets. He appeared in a total of 18 NBA games, averaging 2.8 PPG and 1.2 APG in 13.2 MPG. Weber, 25, played one game for Miami during the 2015/16 season, so this is his second stint in the organization.

He has also donned the Warriors and Hornets uniforms. Overall, he’s logged 45 NBA games, averaging 3.4 PPG and 1.4 APG in 13.6 MPG.

Weber provides depth at the point guard spot behind starter Goran Dragic and Tyler Johnson. The addition of Weber gives Miami 14 players on the roster, not counting its two-way contracts, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel tweets.
